Belize Discount Shuttles

This company is the best.!
Cordelia and Paul Lanza are very responsive and prompt in answering questions . They are very accommodating!!!
We were met by Troy, our driver. He helped us in the grocery store . He waited patiently while we visited the Belize Zoo which is worth visiting.
He is more than a driver and gave us so much information about Belize.
The SUV was immaculate. He adhered to the Gold Standard and took our temperature and contact tracing. He wore his mask for the full trip.
He was a very safe driver and we appreciated that our safety was important.
I would highly recommend Discount.

Least expensive option
Mar 2020
We researched numerous shuttle drivers for our trip segments in Belize:

Airport to San Ignacio ($100 US)
San Ignacio to Belize Zoo ($80 US)
Belize Zoo to Airport ($60 US)

Discount Belize Shuttles offered the best prices for 2 people. These prices were slightly discounted for booking multiple transfers. You will need to ask for the discount or at least I had to. Prices for each segment listed above in ( ). Prices listed above are total and not per person. A basic rental car for a week was going to be double this price + cost of gas. For some of our travels a basic car would not have been sufficient and would have wanted a small suv = more $$$.

Took 3 tours in Belize (ATM, Barton and Tikal) and all picked up at our jungle lodge, Vanilla Hills Lodge. More reason not to have a rental car.

Driving the 3 routes we needed didn’t seem like they would be too bad if in the daylight but why spend more when someone else will do all the work?! Wouldn’t want to drive at night. Roads also didn’t seem well marked?

Our drivers all offered to stop at grocery stores en route to our destinations to pick up groceries, etc. You can even grab a beer and drink in the van if that suits your fancy. Again, why get a rental car when it’s more $$ and you can chill in an air conditioned van with a drink in hand?!

We had a few small minor issues with our first shuttle from the airport. I brought this to Paul’s attention immediately and no additional issues.

Don’t always assume having a rental car is less expensive than private drivers when traveling anywhere. Depends on your destination and of course the # of people.

Very clean and large vans. Able to accommodate large groups if necessary. We are coming back to Belize next yr with a large group and will book Discount Belize again for our travels to Placencia.

Great experience with this company!
Jan 2020 • Couples
Our experience with Discounted Belize Shuttles was very good. we were able to prepay and just as promised Mark was waiting for us to transport us from the airport to San Ignacio. Mark suggested a stop at the Belize zoo as an option. We are so glad we took him up on it. The zoo with its animals is very nice and gave us a much needed break on a long travel day. Tim transported us back to the airport. Tim was very personable and great guy. Very reliable and at a reasonable price!

Shuttle Trips
Feb 2018 • Couples
We pre-arranged several trips with Discounted Belize Shuttles as they were one of the better priced ones and we didn't regret doing so.
They answered our e mails very fast, not matter what the time of the day was.
We had the same, excellent driver, Julian, in all the trips, being him a very conscious and safe driver who help us in many ways and give us information in every question we had related to nature, towns, people, etc.
The transport vehicle was a late model Jeep, a relief as we were expecting something not as good, which made our trips very enjoyable. He also was always in time to pick us up and sometimes, even earlier.
We highly recommend Discounted Belize Shuttles and Tours.
Thank you.

Nice to be able to prepay
Feb 2018 • Couples
I chose this shuttle service due to the face that I could prepay with my credit card. A lot places in Belize only take cash and won’t accept credit cards for shuttles and excursions. It was a bit more expensive however a taxi is $25 to the water ferry and this place charged $30. It was also nice that emails were answered quickly as it seemed a lot of places took forever to reply if at all. The down side we were picked up on time from the airport and taken to the ferry terminal....the wrong terminal. There are two and the second is just down The street a bit but we did not realize there were two separate terminals for each ferry company until after our bags were already checked. So we had to get our bags back and lug them down the street in the rain to the other terminal. We had also bought return passage when we were leaving from the ferry terminal to the airport. When we got off of the ferry there was no one waiting for us we went outside and waited still no one. Luckily one of the guys in the ferry terminal agreed to call our shuttle service for us and let them know we were waiting the same gentleman came to pick us up and apologized as he was down at the other terminal again the wrong one. Overall I would say it would be worth it just make sure it is very clear ...which I thought mine was...which terminal you’re using for the ferry service ocean ferry or San Pedro express I am almost positive that I told them ocean ferry I can actually pull up the email to see but you might just want to reconfirm close to your arrival date.

Fantastic service!!
Jan 2018 • Solo
As a solo female traveller, I was having a hard time finding a company that offered shared shuttles when I needed, and that I could afford. Paul was so very helpful in keeping me in the loop the moment he knew of an opening that fit my schedule. And his price couldn’t be beat! My flight was delayed, but his driver was still there waiting with my name on a sign to take me to San Ignacio. I was so relieved! Super nice and informed driver, it was a stress-free and enjoyable ride. A few days later, I inquired if he had anyone heading to Hopkins, and he hooked me up again for a very reasonable rate, I just had to go down to Maya Beach first with the couple who originally booked the shuttle ( trust me, it was worth it for the experience!) Mark was more of an entertaining driving encyclopedia than anything! What fun, and he even made a special stop for me to get some slate at the best price he knew of around. 2 wonderful experiences that really saved me a lot of time and money, and especially anxiety. I will not hesitate to use these guys my next visit. If you’re travelling solo, these guys are your way to go. Thank you Paul and team!!

Professional, Great Price, Great Driver
Jan 2018 • Couples
Our shuttle driver Mark was early to make sure our drive from San Ignacio to the airport was safe and not stressful. We called a number of places and I'm so glad we decided to use this service. We asked and made a quick stop for coffee along the way which made the journey even nicer. He had great recommendations for whatever we asked. I plan to come back and will use both the company and the driver again.

Great company to work with for Shuttles
Jun 2017 • Couples
We used Belize Discount Shuttle for 2 different shuttle rides. From Belize City to San Ignacio and San Ignacio to Placencia. We worked with them before hand to carve in some stops along our drives to see more of Belize. Both drivers we had were nice, helpful and informative. Both drives were easy and comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

Transport from Belize Airport to San Ignacio both ways
Jan 2017 • Family
Discount Belize Shuttles provided us transportation from the airport and to San Ignacio. The driver Abraham was waiting for us with a sign and escorted us to a newer model Jeep SUV for the 2 hour drive. He was very professional and knowledgeable. At the end of our trip I called Discount Belize shuttle the day prior to leaving and requested a ride back to the airport. Once again the driver was on time in a Toyota Rav4, and stopped to get us a bite at a local place before dropping us off at the airport. After seeing the other transportation options in the country I'm glad I chose this one.
